Mango Juice / How To Make Mango Juice


Mango Juice, mangoes are the best thing about summer! Homemade mango juice tops the list of summer drinks, I mean who wouldn't love a tall glass of iced mango juice to cool down. Sometimes, I'd like to serve Mango Milk Shake to my kids with a bit of mango chunks thrown it for added surprise....but when it comes to Mango Juice, I like to serve it chilled. Have you tried Mango Mouse, Mango Ice Cream, Mango Ice Cubes, and Mango Curry yet?

Some days back, I shared how to freeze mango puree/pulp which I have been doing for a long time. I stack my freezer with mango puree, so that we could enjoy mangoes even when the season is over. I'd like to share this particular mango juice which has been made by that puree by adding water and topped with ice cubes. Some of you asked for the reason for adding sugar and like I mentioned in the comments, it is to improve flavor and help stabilize color and also use it for making juice or even in desserts.... I mean that makes it easy....there is no need to to thaw the puree to add sugar! you just have to plop some puree in a glass and add water....mix it really well....and ta! da! Mango Juice is ready! and the best thing is you can enjoy even after mango season is over....

I'd like to squeeze in a bit of lime juice or squeeze in a bit of orange juice for an extra flavor....have you tried
adding crushed mint leaves in the juice?? Well, I have and it is awesome!!...you should try it too.

Author: Nisa Homey.
Serves: One.
Preparation Time: 3 min.
Ingredients:
Pull out the mango goodness from the freezer, I mean frozen mango puree.


Scoop out 2 or 3 tbsp of the frozen puree. Add water, stir for a min or two....top with ice cubes! Easy Mango Juice, just for you to chill! psst! please remind yourself to make mango puree ASAP!

Enjoy!! and Don't Share! This is just for YOU :)

NOTE: This post is mainly to show you that juice with frozen mango puree is as good as fresh juice. No excuse if you live in Kerala, you should  make some and freeze. The color of the puree depends on the variety of the mangoes, if it is very fibrous blend in high speed for longer time.

P.S: With a container full of mango puree you can make so many mango recipes....especially when mangoes are not in season!

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
